I could not run this morning mainly cuz I was having stomach issues and I didn't feel like taking a chance. I also felt like I was going to throw-up so I waited until later to see if I could get feeling better. So I was able to get out later in the afternoon, I still was feeling sub-par but I made it work. I ran the Payson Park loop but cut out the rollers as I was short on time and I was still feeling not to good. My average pace was 8:27 with a total time of 52:30, my watch was acting up so I'm just guessing on some of these numbers. My average HR was 145.

I'm glad I was able to get it in and I'm hoping tomorrow I'll be feeling better.

Later.

The plan today was to do 3 sets of quarter mile repeats with a quarter mile recover between each repeat... I wasn't sure what to expect.  I just tried to do each one better than previous one. I started with a 2 mile warm up out past Mini GU and then I started in and they went like this.

Set 1

1 .25 1.39 (6:38)  recovery 2:07 okay.

2. .25 1:45 (6:48) 2:12 could have been better.

Set 2

I then did a half mile recovery between the set

1. .25 1:35 (6:18) 2:10 way better.

2. .25 1:42 (6:51) 2:15 not as good but this was into the wind and slightly uphill.

No half mile recovery between these just kept going...

Set 3

1 .25 1:38 (6:33) 2:24 better, this was uphill and head wind.

2 .25 1:35 (6:20) 2:15 better.

3. .25 1:35 (6:22) 2:22 I felt like one more so I went for it.

 

I was real happy with the last three, they were pretty consistent...  I then cooled down for 2 miles on the way back to the house. My average pace was 8:16 with my total time at 1:07:16, I forgot my HR monitor so no info on that. I feel pretty good about this its the first real speed workout I've down for a while, it was beautiful day out that's for sure.

See ya tomorrow.

Just a nice easy run that started out towards Payson but after fighting the wind for two miles I decided to run with the wind for awhile so I headed back to the house and then out past the stake center. Legs were a little tired from the speed workout yesterday, but not to bad, so I kept the pace nice easy and just enjoyed the nice warm weather. My average pace was 8:41 with a total time of 1:01:13, I didn't wear my HR monitor so no info on that again... After the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups and then I rolled my leg really good.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the mailbox route today but I did it in reverse so I ran out to Harry's Hill, ran up that darn thing and then over  and up to the mailboxes and then down to Mount Loafer school and then home. I felt pretty good running up Harry's and most of the uphills but on the downhill I felt it pretty good but that's why we run this route so we can get stronger. I had one MP mile on the way down but I really didn't push the pace I just wanted to get back to running this route again and reaping the benefits of the hills. My average pace was 8:30 with my total time at 1:00:50, my HR average was at 145 so a pretty good run and I was really happy with it. I finished up with some strength training on my lower body and then rolled my leg with the big foam roller.

See ya tomorrow.

I started out running out to GU Corner and then down into the river bottoms and then I headed back towards the house, the plan was to hook up with my brother Curtis and then run back towards GU corner to get the 18 miles in. So I picked him just as he was coming past Mt. Loafer school and then we ran together for about 4 miles, after dropping him off just before GU corner I hit some sub 8:15 miles on the way back. My average pace for the day was 8:42 and my total time was 2:38:16, I didn't wear my HR monitor again so now info on that...  The pace felt pretty good being I had tired legs and it was getting towards the end, I felt pretty good for the most part. I will be heading down to Disneyland Monday so I hope to get in some running most every day. I probably won't run on Monday cuz that will be a travel day and I don't know about Saturday cuz that will be a travel day to, so I will have to see. I have a good week of training and I am happy with where I'm at.

See ya Monday, maybe.
